THE L L eee-i : 99 Governor Frcar made the speech 1 the Commercial Club Bhortly after noon today and thoro wero many i present who sat up and took notice as the Chief Executive spoko from i' the shoulder and with a Roosevelt tans about the crcat question ot what shall ho done to glvo to Hawaii a population, not of floating allono working a while on the sugar plantations and then moving on, but of bona fldo settlers, lovers ot the land, workers for the coinmun- Ily, citizens, Americans. Governor Frear declared that tho question confronted tho government and tho plantations and could not be beg- god. Speedy action will bo forced for a solution ot tho labor pro- blcm. Tho day may como when plantations will ho snl.t up In small holdings. B G .;..:... j Governor Frear was the guest of tho Commercial Club at lunch today and gave an Interesting address on labor, lands and otner matters. Tho Governor stated that ho had contracted to spealc only on tho un derstanding that his remarks would be on a very oid though most Important subject, no other than tho question ot having our population made up ot small landed proprietors or a floating allon population. Ho would not go Into tho solutions of the problem or the many things which might be said for tho attractiveness of tho Islands, ho might contemplate the forces ot men the building of a naval station and fortifications hero would bilng; ho might discuss Hawaii as tho center of tho Pacific, as she will bo with tho Panama canal open, with the west ern states pouring tourists here, and sending fortunes to build up Honolulu but these wcro not things he wished now to. speak of. "It wasn't so long ago tho sugar trust ,sald we'd never produce over 15J.O0O tons per year 01 sugar, but wo aro doing three tlmc3 that much. As with sugar so with pineapples, sisal and others, The wisest Is a fool on prediction. Wo are greater and moro prosperous now than we ever thougnt wo'd bo. .Lumber was not thought to be anything in Hawaii, but late de velopments are showing otherwise." In regard to looking at our main In dustry, sugar, ho was not prepared to say but that tho sugar industry would como to a speedy necessity of se riously considering radical changes 111 tho population and labor ssheme. What if it is truo that no more ipaneso aro coming to Hawaii? Ho hoped tho report was not true that they will bo stopped. But Japanese, as it is, aro going Into business for themselves all the time, leaving tho plantations. Plantations are now giv ing land and houses to tie down their THERE'S NO about tho necessity ot in surance now-a-days. It cost ho little to make the welfare of your family a certainty, ana tho benefit Is such a big help to them when it comes. Tho only things to consider aro what company you shall Insure in, and for what amount. Naturally, both these questions iro Important one.

So many can make a better living on their own little land. A plantation must emnlov a floating class of labor; but If It has settled laborers near by, on their own lands, they can employ them when they want to and do not have to tgIvo them constant employment. An mionor class in point of health is the floating class. Those who are encour aged with pieces of land and oppor tunities to grow something themselves and make homes for themselves are better laborers and more willing. 'Difllci'itles tho greatest is the amount of capital required by a small farmer to start. He has to pay high for tho land; it takes years for crops. Elsewhere banks assist the small farmer; a regular part of the banking business to carry the small farmer. "Our sugar industries should have this in mino; they may be forced to consider It sooner or later. "There's going to be a lot of caplntal hero and It may he that It will large ly be devoted to carrying small farm ers. "Another difficulty the limited and making sure that settlers are bona tide. Conditions will later probably require tho cutting up of plantations and ranches. "The difficulty will be with tho would- tio small proprietor.

There will be not so much du flculty with the planters as with the small proprietors In mating tno changes. "Wo have various forms of acquir ing land under the law here.
